Newton, Impulse and the Game of Billiards.
A physics 12 talk about Impulse and the Conservation of Momentum, and why marbles and billiards act they way they do. This talk includes the work that Isaac Newton, Huygens, Wallis, Wren and the Royal Society put into discovery why billiards act they way they do. Perhaps it started with gentlemen around the pool table at the Royal Society in the 17th century and ends with Newton's Third Law: For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
